THE CIRCLE 




1932 



PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS 

ABBOT ACADEMY 

ANDOYER, MASSACHUSETTS 



TO MISS JEXKS 

Of all human qualities there is one supremely prized — 
the ability to be a friend. This is meant not in the ordin- 
ary sense of the word — the merry smile, the cordial 
word. The true definition of a friend is one who. aware 
of other people's failings, can still offer unbiased friend- 
ship; one who continues her loyalty and fine attitude 
toward others in their absence as well as their presence. 
Criticism from such a friend is sincere, and, if unfayor- 
able, deseryed. and therefore not resented. Add to this 
characteristic unfailing sympathy and the ability to 
make people respect as well as loye you, and there you 
ha\e a friend almost too perfect to be true. As a class we 
have decided to dedicate this book to you because, to our 
minds, you represent what we all striye to be — a good 
friend.

An Appreciation 

To Miss Kelsey and Miss Mason : — 

It is beyond our small powers to express just what it has meant 
to us as individuals to be the members of the last Senior Class to have 
the privilege and honor of associating with you as friends and pupils. 

We have noticed that those who try sincerely to express apprecia- 
tion have been actuated either by gratefulness, by esteem, or by af- 
fection. We find this to be a most noble custom worthy of our purpose 
and worth v of you. 

To you, then, we devote this page of appreciation in gratefulness 
for daily contact with you; in esteem, because you form a gloriously 
strong force, yet have continued to maintain feminine tenderness; and 
in affection, for no reason sufficiently tangible to be expressed, yet for 
reasons which are of all others the most weighty. 

With the utmost sincerity, 

The Class of 1932

"You'd better ask Helen." We wonder how manv times a 
day we hear that! And the nice part about it is that she can 
always tell us. Helen is a born leader, and those who have 
seen her playing basketball, or broad-jumping in track, or 
arguing in Q.E.D., or heard her singing in choir will realize 
her accomplishments are not at all limited.

"Good and true and jolly too." We would be quite lonely 
if it weren't for Betty's joyful smile. Her splendid leadership 
of Fidelio has made her very popular with us all. What 
would we do if she did not have a duet to play at one of the 
recitals? Wherever Bettv is she is always doing her best and 
joining in with the spirit of the occasion.

If we should take a Salem Street walk next year, we would

would come the dawn and the mystery would be solved. 
Jinny Brown is gone! 

But what about us? We'll miss her too. Who'll be our 
fashion-plate par excellence? Or who could ever fulfil her 
place as beloved President of A. A. A.? And who could ever 
imitate her "Eeeee!"?

Pauline will be right in the middle of it. She just loves a good 
time — such as putting pictures together in Fidelio. We've 
also heard of her good times with Johnny ! We only hope that 
she doesn't lead him as merry a chase as she leads some of us in 
basketball. But then — perhaps we'd better not go into that 
after all.

I have heard that in the dim dark ages Kitty was our

We who have seen her in dramatics might think that her 
future lay in that direction, but to anyone who happens to be 
around at mail time, it is obvious that her future is more 
definitely assured.

Why do our plays go so smoothly? Why, that's because 
Helen is stage manager. Who comes quietly forth with a 
suggestion that solves the problem at hand? Helen again — she 
certainly is efficiency personified. She also has a very subtle 
sense of humor, and is generally chuckling at some little joke 
all her own. We can forgive her little weakness for playing 
tricks on others, for her own good nature makes us like her so.

It seems a little unnecessary to put anything under Lucy's 
name after all, doesn't it? We all know what should be said 
about our noble President. However, we'll fool you and not 
say it. We'd much rather mention what a good friend she is, 
and how much evervone likes her. And did you ever see 
Smithy dearie lead her? And what is it about songs that come 
over the "rec" room radio? And what became of those ribbons 
that she used to keep on her screen?

One of Joyce's weaknesses is dogs and horses. She knows all

She not only draws clever little sketches of them, but she 
writes very amusing stories about them, too. And speaking of 
writing, we are looking forward to the day when Joyce will 
be a famous authoress!

"Well done is better than well said." Leonore is a lady of 
few words, but the few she chooses to say are well worth 
listening to. Hezzy thinks she is fat, but we all know that she 
is happily endowed by nature with a nimble form as well as 
"smooth" looks. Her defying way is charmingly handled and 
is not to be taken at all seriously. Added to these accomplish- 
ments is her artistic ability.

Did vou ever see such twins that weren't twins? They don't 
even dress alike, (an unprecedented behavior in twins), but 
isn't that inevitable in the case of two such different types of 
beauty? Though they both play the piano, honors go to 
Betty as the most accomplished pianist. At our recitals she 
comes forth with these terribly difficult concertos, or what- 
ever they are, that just make us ashamed to play even chop 
sticks! Betty is also President of Aeolian — and a very good 
one at that.

left over from those dear old days when you roomed with

Curly black hair, (the envy of the whole school) big gray 
eves, and many admirers — who could it be but Clare? And 
these are but a few of her attractions. We won't forget that 
voice of hers in a moment, or the recitals in which she played , 
or the beautiful ladies with which she illustrates her books — 
and particularly the delightful poems set to popular tunes!

Whenever we get depressed or wonder how on earth we 
can be the simply perfect girl, good-natured, good-looking, 
and studious, and school-spirited all at once, we look at 
Betty and begin to struggle anew; but somehow she stays far 
ahead of us. We who know how hard it is to find time to 
practice and study too, congratulate Betty on playing as well 
as she does and practically leading the honor roll ever) 
semester. As if this weren't enough, she's about made the 
Class Book.

In her literary moments Bettie does some reallv good work 
which is the wonder and delight of English V. She never gets 
ruffled or upset about things, and has never been caught 
studying — yet the results are always gratifying. With that 
faculty she ought certainly to get along noblv when she goes

Dottie came to us full of that Chicago attraction that 
fascinated us immediately. And her personality plus her 
vitality makes her one of the cutest girls in the class. Dottie is 
very serious and is forever asking questions which charm the 
faculty completely, and send us into stitches as the familiar 
"I don't see why?" comes out. Her ambition, we hear, is to 
become an actress, and from what we have seen of her acting, 
we would place her in stardom at Hollywood right away. 
And after all, Dottie, "why not?"

Class History 

The beginning of our famous class started five long years ago with the goodly 
number of six. Many were the wild tales told of us while we were in Sunset — throwing 
people into tubs of water was a common occurrence, and water fights were staged at 
least once a week. How big we felt when we had our first class meeting — a real organ- 
ized class at last! No longer were we the school babies! We were fortunate enough to 
be able to take part in the Centennial celebration — and what a celebration it was! 
The high light of our third year was our debut of the prom — but only as ushers. Of 
course when we started our Senior-Mid year we were allowed some of the privileges 
which are granted to the two upper classes. There was our exciting tea dance, the 
Senior prom, and our own banquet. But what can ever compare with our Senior year? 
We came back feeling the heavy responsibility of high and mighty Seniors. The year 
turned out to be filled not only with responsibility, but with unlimited pleasure. 
First there was the Senior picnic, then right after midyears we traveled North to 
Intervale — The Intervale of our dreams for four years. Passing over the lameness and 
bruises which we acquired there, we also found bacon-bats, flapjack parties, sleigh- 
rides, not to mention hikes into North Conway. The Senior play was a great success, 
surpassing all expectations, and the prom followed in its turn and was considered by 
one and all the best dance ever held. Graduation looms up as the great climax of five 
years' work. We shall march down the aisle with our "'little blue books" thinking 
not of what has passed, but what awaits us out in the wide world.

1. Dot Rockwell's girdle to Doris Marchand. 

2. A membership to "Goodwife and Mother's League" to Clara Smith. 

3. Frances Harvey's loud laughter to Betty Weaver. 

4. A silencer for Catherine Campbell's nose and a booklet on, "Care and 
Feeding of Roommates." 

5. Atossa Welles' moire pillow to Caroline Guptill. 

6. Lucy Drummond's scales to Barbara Worth. 

7. Dorothy Rockwell's hair to Gloria Grosvenor.

We leave to the Faculty 

1. To Miss Moses a package of Kleenex to wipe her glasses ofFwith. 

2. Dotso Richardson's "Palmer Method" to Miss R. Chickering. 

3. To Miss Bailey a dumbwaiter on which to carry Star's food upstairs. 

4. All our appendices to Miss Grimes to add to her laboratory collection. 
5- To Miss Robinson an extra pair of glass eyes. 

6. To Miss Patten, who has begun to collect pins, we leave a small box to 
put them in. 

7. To Mrs. Craig we leave a pair of track shoes in order that we may hear her 
coming, and a pair of suspenders. 

8. All our old braces to be made into chains for Miss Carpenter and Miss 
Hopkins' Ford. 

We leave to the school : 

1. Frostila with which to make our hands as alluring as Miss Patten's. 
We leave our heart and hand to the ladv of the Dedication.

Class of thirty-two, 

Class of colors white and scarlet, 

To you we'll be true 

And above the rest 

You'll hear our voices 

Ringing loud and long 

To the red and white, 

O'er the world we'll 

Sing your glory 

To you we'll e'er be true, 

Oh class of thirty-two. 



Tree Song 



Just as this lovely tree 

Can ne'er unlovely be 

Within the charmed circle of this place, 

Our love and memory 

O Abbot dear of thee 

We'll hold forever in our fond embrace 

And may we, year by year — 

Our lives first rooted here — 

Prove worthy of this circle's boundless grace.

Intervale! The very word makes anyone at Abbot who ever has the chance to go 
there sit up and listen! Going to Intervale for three days after the mid-year exams is 
the Seniors' privilege at Abbot each year. Sometimes, just before we leave, some few 
girls think that perhaps they would rather not go. They usually do go finally (they 
are unluckv if they don't!) and would they have missed it? Just ask them and I can 
guarantee a very decisive "no "! 

From the moment that we get on the train to go, until we get off when we come 
back to Abbot, excitement reigns everywhere and everybody is supremely happy. This 
vear we didn't think there would be much snow, but when the train drew into the 
Intervale station we knew that we would have plenty. In one day, in fact, almost six 
inches fell! 

As usual we began our fun by driving to the "Bellevue" in a huge sleigh drawn 
bv four horses. From that moment on we were busy at all times doing many and varied 
things. The skating, sleighing, skiing, tobogganing, "cuttering", and trailing were 
all enjoved by everyone — especially by those who had never before been in a place so 
well suited to winter sports. 

We had the annual climb up Mount Surprise, and also the "flapjack" party in 
which there was a race to see who could eat the greatest number of "flapjacks". Are 
we or aren't we surprised to find that Helen won the race? But then, it would never do 
to single poor Helen out! What about all the rest of us who had nothing less than 
steak and fried potatoes for breakfast? or two or three helpings of pancakes and 
sausages? We just couldn't help being hungry and, as far as I can see, no one so much as 
thought about calories — they just ate and ate! 

We were obliged to retire at eleven o'clock and, after a busy day out in that 
famously invigorating mountain air, no one objected strenuously to going to bed. 
There is nothing much more thrilling than was the walk to North Conway after 
supper for a soda — especially when it was snowing hard and the world was covered 
by a thick white blanket. This sight, those of us who saw it would say, was one of 
our "big moments". Another sight, never to be forgotten bv those who saw it, was 
the sunrise up over Mount Washington. Miss Bailey brought the attention of all of us 
to this magnificent picture, and the memory of it will remain with us always. 

We Seniors want everyone of you under-classmen to be sure and take advantage of 
these three days full of fun and overflowing with good cheer and surprises next vear. 
Don't miss the experience because it comes only "once in a life time."

Intervale Songs 

(Tune: Sleepy time Dunn South') 

P. ile moon shining on the fields of snow. 

Abbot girls singing soft and low, 

Needn't tell you so because you know 

It's Intervale we love. 

Cold winds blowing through the tall pine trees. 

Even tho' it's cold we don't freeze, 

'Cause we always do just as we please 

When we're at Intervale. 

Skiing, skating, sliding, sleighing and such, 

We love it all so much. 

Bacon bats, and flapjacks, steak, and the rest — 

Which do we love the best" 

Everything we do up here is great 

And we don't have to hesitate — 

Saying this we all cooperate 

It's Intervale we love! 



(Tune : Ooh That Kiss) 

Intervale, what a time we had there 

Though the ice was bad there 

In the mountain air 

Intervale, all the food we've eaten 

Surely can't be beaten 

Of our weight beware' 

Oh those rides when we're trailing behind a horse, 

Oh those slides were lots of fun of course ! 

Intervale is the big attraction 

Gives a swell reaction 

See vou there! 



53 



The Abbot Circle 19 3 2 



^Tune : A Little Bit of Heaven') 

Sure a little bit of heaven 

Fell from out the sky one day, 

And it nestled in New Hampshire 

Not so many miles away; 

And when the angels found it 

Sure it looked so sweet and fair 

Thev said '"Suppose we leave it 

For it looks so peaceful there.'' 

So they sprinkled it with sunshine 

Just to make the pine trees grow. 

They're the finest ones that can be found 

No matter where you go. 

And they placed the mountains round it 

Just to keep away the gale, 

And when they had it finished 

Sure thev called it Intervale. 



Way up north at Intervale 

We forget P. A. and Yale, 

That's because we've so much else to do! 

Lots of muscle on the make 

We lick our chops and eat the steak 

Let this be a warning unto you! 

Wrapped in blankets ten feet deep 

That's the way we get our sleep 

Bedsocks, and hot-water bottles too. 

When we go off in a sleigh 

No one cares how much we weigh — 

Senior-mids we wish the same to vou!

Inventions 

A. Rolled-up shade to be fastened around forehead in the form of a becoming festoon, 
(old Gaelic word meaning "first one" — also probably the only one) When home- 
work is not prepared, subject pulls chain, releasing shade, which falls down and 
envelops subject. This reveals a large sign, "ABSENT"; a casual glance by the 
teacher will satisfy her that we are not there, and probably never were. 

B. Small square in front of Miss Bailey's desk, equipped like a "sinking orchestra". 
The floor automatically sinks every fifteen minutes. This is, of course, worked on 
the non-stagger system — you don't stagger out of the office, but merely sink through 
the floor in the appropriate manner. A green light hung directly above the sub- 
ject's head would provide the required ghastly effect. We suggest carrying your 
copy of Hamlet with you. 

C. Bed in the approved roller-towel fashion. Everv Saturday bed rotates. New bed 
comes into view. Snap opening provided every ten feet. Unsnap, get in, sleep, get 
out, snap. Due to the continuity of sheets, blankets, etc. bed never has to be 
made. These last a school year. 

D. Alphabet soup for Miss Chickering's spelling classes. A practical course, not 
only in spelling, not only in getting people to eat soup, but in actually getting 
them to notice what was in the soup! Example: 

Miss Chickering: Phyllis, how do you spell "mediaeval?" 
Phyllis: There's a carrot in the way, Miss Chickering. 

Thus all the bad spelling in the school could be blamed on Miss Butterfield. 

E. Dictaphone outside Miss Kelsey's office with a small resume of the day's little 
morals and epigrams, to be turned on after lunch to amuse those who are waiting 
outside. At regular intervals there should also be a still small voice whispering 
"come, come, come" so that the next in line could enter the office. By the time it 
came to be our turn to go in, we should all be Perfect Ladies! 

F. Did you ever think of the only real way to be assured of complete warmth on 
cold days? The method is so simple as to be positively childish, yet how easy it is 
for our great and ponderous brains to overlook such Simple Ways Out! Take the 
contents of one of those dry-hot-water bottles, swallow them (the contents), and 
then the next time you are cold, quickly run to the fountain and swallow two 
teaspoons of water, no more, no less; jump up and down twenty times, and there 
you are! From head to heels you are thoroughly warmed, and this is guaranteed 
to last at least two days. (N.B. : As we can readily see that this would put several 
people out of business* we hesitate to suggest more than one or two people doing 

this.) 

* Mrs. Duncan, Miss Butterfield, Mr. Scannell, and Charles.

Bradford Day 

This year it was Bradford's turn to come to Abbot for our annual Play Day. We 
tried out a new plan for entertainment this year. Instead of Bradford's spending a 
whole day at Abbot, the girls arrived at four o'clock in the afternoon to stay until 
seven. 

Upon their arrival, we exchanged greetings as usual by songs, and then followed 
the rush for "our group". Both Bradford and Abbot were divided into separate groups, 
each group having a certain color. The corresponding groups of the two schools at 
last found each other, were taken through the receiving line by Abbot group-leaders, 
and then up to the Seniors' rooms. 

An orchestra which had been engaged for the afternoon was an unusual treat, so 
after much talking and showing the Bradford girls around the school, we all danced 
in the "rec" room until time for supper. Supper was served in McKeen Memorial and 
the orchestra supplied music between courses. 

At about seven we were very reluctant to have to say goodbye to our Bradford 
friends, but we hope that they enjoyed the afternoon as much as we did and will want 
to come again. 



Fall Field Day 

It was the day of the Harvard-Yale football game so most of the players were 
absent, but thev made up for it by sending telepathic messages of sympathy and good 
wishes! The Gargoyles and Griffins marched around the circle and around Draper Hall 
to the basketball field where we froze our extremities, although we were warmed in- 
wardly by excitement and anticipation. The Gargoyles won the first team game after 
an exciting contest between very well matched players. The Griffins retaliated by the 
winning the second team game. In fact, they won the hockey and everything else but a 
couple of the minor sports such as clock-golf and driving. The final score for the after- 
noon was 55-20 in favor of the Griffins. The Gargoyles, however, are teeming with 
hidden talent, which is bound to appear in spring sports if not in the fall ones!

The Senior Play 



THE CRADLE SONG" 
By G. Martinez Sierra 

On March 15, 1932, the Senior class presented the Cradle Song, a two-act plav bv 
G. Martinez Sierra. It is a very unusual play giving a pleasing glimpse into the life in 
the Convent. 

The first act opens on the nuns seated near the grille. It is the birthday of the 
Mother Prioress, and she has been receiving many presents. One of these presents 
turns out to be a baby. After much controversy, the old doctor who has been attending 
the nuns for years, decides to adopt the child if they will take care of it. 

The second act is 18 years later. The child has grown up and is leaving the Con- 
vent to be married. The young man she is to marry comes to the convent and is pre- 
sented to the nuns, who approve of him highly. The parting is sad because Teresa, the 
girl, is leaving, and, in doing so, is taking away with her all the joyousness with 
which her presence filled the convent. 

This play shows the great sense of mother-love felt even by the nuns who h.iw 
taken vows to renounce all earthly things. It is both touching and charming.

Abbot Dramatic Society Plays 

DUST OF THE ROAD 

Bv Kenneth Sawyer GooDNf.vx 

On December 8, 1931, the Abbot Dramatic Society presented two plays. The first 
of these, "Dust of the Road" by Kenneth Sawyer Goodman, was a one act play based 
on one man's desire for money. Peter Steele has been entrusted with a certain amount 
of money for the son of an old friend. He has kept the money instead of giving it to the 
boy when he should have done so. It is Christmas Eve, and his conscience bothers him 
a great deal. A tramp enters who shows him how wrong he is. At the end Peter and 
his wife, Prudence, are quite ready and willing to give up the money, and lead a happy 
life after that because of it.

THURSDAY EVENING 

By Christopher Morley 

This is a delightful comedy with its setting in the kitchen at the home of Gordon 
and Laura Johns. It is the maid's night out and both the mothers-in-law are there for 
dinner. An argument ensues which is settled by the mothers-in-law. It is a sprightly 
play and in pleasant contrast to the "Dust of the Road."

HEARTS TO MEND 

By Harry A. Everstreet 

On January 19, 1932 the Senior-Mid class presented three plavs. The first of the 
series was "Hearts to Mend", a Pierrot and Pierrette Comedy. The love of Pierrot and 
Pierrette had lessened and their hitherto happy life is endangered. However, a tinker, 
skilled in the art of mending hearts as well as pots and pans, made them happv once 
again. This plav was greatly dependent on the pantomime which was executed in a 
most pleasing manner.

THE VALIANT 

By Holsworthy Hall and Robert Middlemass 

The second play, "The Valiant," is a story which everyone knows. It is just one 
more poignant proof of the power of filial love. The acting in this play was highly 
commendable and surpassed our highest expectations. We were all convinced that, in 
truth, the valiant taste of death but once.

THE WORKHOUSE WARD 

By Lady Gregory 

The last, but by no means the least, of this delightful series of plays was "The 
Workhouse Ward." It was quite the most hilarious bit of acting we have seen here 
in a long time. One will always remember its wit, dialect, and flying feathers.

Contentment 

It was after ten one hot summer night in August — or rather it was a hot night 
everywhere but on the water. The sky was covered with stars — some shining brightly, 
others seeming to twinkle in and out in the distance. The mast-head lights of many 
boats swayed silently back and forth, as they were rocked by the incoming tide. 
From the club-house on the nearby shore the faint music of an orchestra drifted to me 
over the water. I imagined myself dancing to that orchestra, and yet was glad that I 
was not. Lying on my back on the forward deck of the "Wanakah", I was superbly 
happy; I was contented; I forgot my worries, and I lazily took notice of a beautiful 
night on the water. In the city it would be unbearably hot, but out here where I was 
a cool breeze fanned me at intervals — just enough to keep me cool. 

The moon was full — a very beautiful sight and, as I watched it, it seemed to sway 
back and forth in the heavens, when, in reality, it was the boat which rocked. The 
tide was almost full. I could hear the waves lapping up against the rocks on the shore, 
although where I was the water seemed almost still. A few ripples here and there 
were the only evidences that the tide was really coming in. I could hear voices — ex- 
cited and happy, I supposed — mingling with the distant music. There is nothing in the 
world like a silent evening on the water to carry distant sounds distinctly for long 
distances. I could almost understand what they were saying, but I soon tired of trying 
to listen and turned my attention to a small sailboat, a cat boat, which had suddenly 
loomed up beside me out of the darkness. I could hear only the ripple of the water as 
the waves lapped upon the bow, as the little boat glided silently through the water. 
A beautiful sail — so graceful and so silent ! 

Suddenly in the distance, around the cove, came the rhythmic chug-chug of an 
outboard motor. Nearer and nearer it came, until finally it scooted past me and as 
quickly passed into the darkness as the chug-chug became softer and softer. Finally 
I could hear it no more. Soon a large rather bulky looking rowboat came toward me. 
In it were three old grey-haired fishermen who were coming home after a whole day 
out in the cove. They were singing, although rather off-tune, to themselves. I think 
they were singing something about "Sweet Adeline", although I could not dis- 
tinguish the words. I wondered how many fish they had caught, and how much 
patience they must have had to stay in the cove all day. They disappeared, and the 
plop-plop of the oars grew fainter. 

I lay dreaming for a while, thinking of nothing but my contented state of mind, of 
my complete isolation from a hurrying world, and of the wonderful though simple 
happenings about me. My attention was roused for a minute. From the boat next to 
mine came the plop-plop-gurgle of bottles being thrown into the water. I concluded 
that the crew on the "Mabe II" were enjoying themselves. At different times during 

90 



19 3 2 The Abbot Circle 



the evening I heard the same thing happen again. I hoped that they were enjoying 
themselves as much as I was, but I doubted it. 

I heard a distant fog horn which meant that the early morning would be foggy. A 
whiff of air brought me a delicious odor of tobacco smoke, and I remembered my 
father. He was happy, too, and I got up to join him before slipping under my white 
sheet to go to sleep on my bunk and dream yet more of the water and its silent boats. 

Elizabeth Palmer 



Two Loves 

QA Sonnet) 

Two loves have I and both are passing fair; 
And both I love with all my strength and heart. 
And yet I do not know how I can share 
Such force of love, and from them be apart. 

The one has eyes of ever-changing blue; 
Her hair is gently ruffled by the breeze; 
The moonlight tints her face with silver hue, 
As joyfullv she stands among the trees. 

My second love is almost always sad. 
Her voice so clear I love to hear her sing. 
But at the times when she is very glad, 
New hopes and inspirations she can bring. 

The first of these a shaded pool is she. 
My other love the e'er inspiring sea.

Parting Hymn 

Father, I know that all my life 
Is portioned out for me; 

The changes that are sure to come 
: I do not fear to see; : 

But I ask Thee for a present mind 
Intent on pleasing Thee. 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 

Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 
: And to wipe the weeping eyes; : 

And a heart at leisure from itself, 
To sooth and sympathize. 

Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatso'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength 
To none that ask denied, 

And a mind to blend with outward life 
: While keeping at Thy side; : 

Content to fill a little space 
If Thou be glorified.
